VISIT OUR WORKSHOPS
We are a group of carvers, weavers, musicians and crafts people who live and work throughout Te Tai Tokerau, ranging from the Rawhiti weavers on the East coast to the carvers and weavers of the Hokianga on the West coast. Our workshop is situated at Citizens' Hall, Tawanui Road in Kaikohe every Friday from 10.30 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. when traditional taniko weaving and korowai making classes are held. You can find our craftshop at 1 Omapere Road, Kaikohe.
You can also visit the carving studio in Rawene, Hokianga which is in Manning Street, the street that leads to the Rawene Motor Camp. Our workshops are signposted so you will have no trouble finding us.
